My name is Andy Austin and I have been in the real estate industry for over 20 years. I am a licensed auctioneer, appraiser, and real estate salesperson in the Commonwealth of Virginia, as well a licensed auctioneer in the state of West Virginia. I hold the MAI designation from the Appraisal Institute, and the AMM and AARE designations from the National Auctioneers Association, and am a CCIM candidate pursuing the CCIM designation for commercial real estate salespersons.
My appraisal career began in 2005 at an appraisal firm in Roanoke, VA until 2007 when I moved to a large private appraisal firm in Richmond. I formed my own company, Austin Appraisal & Consulting in 2012 and completed the MAI designation in 2013. I have completed appraisal assignments throughout Virginia for a broad range of property types including improved multi-family, retail, special-purpose, and industrial properties, high-value residential properties and vacant residential, industrial, and agricultural sites. Clients have included banks, attorneys, insurance companies, and private landowners and trusts.
In 2016, I obtained auctioneer licensure in Virginia and formed Double A Auction & Realty with a focus on real estate auctions. I am currently a member of the the National Auctioneers Association (NAA). I completed the AARE (Accredited Auctioneer of Real Estate) in October of 2019 and the NAA's Auction Marketing Manager (AMM) designation. In addition to real estate and personal property auctions, I consult with other auctioneers for live simulcast auctions. My experience in asset dispositions includes seized real estate on behalf of the U.S. Marshals Service and tax-delinquent real estate for cities and counties throughout Virginia.
I am currently pursuing a broker license in Virginia to provide real estate marketing services on a national level.
In late 2020, I purchased a former sawmill facility in Kenbridge, VA to convert to an auction facility. This auction yard will allow the company to deliver online, live, and simulcast sales of ANY kind of asset! We can handle entire estate liquidations of any scope and size. I would love the opportunity to discuss auctions and real estate with you.
